Position: PhD Student
Project: Social evolution in neotropical paper-wasps
Research Interests: I am in the 3rd year of a PhD using miniature radio-transponders to explore cooperation in Polistes paper-wasps across South and Central America, working in French Guiana, Panama, and Brazil. For what this involves, see National Geographic Explorers Journal.
I blog about my PhD and snippets of ecology and evolution at Adventures of a Trainee Zoologist.
